Watching that last Real Housewives of New York episode, I couldn’t help getting vicariously nervous that Ramona Singer was going to miss her own birthday party. Sure, it was a surprise party so Ramona had no idea that she was messing up the plans by double booking that night. It was just pretty obnoxious that she couldn’t spend time with Dorinda Medley without having the backup plan of going out to dinner with a random whose name she couldn’t remember.
Nevertheless, she made it to the party, seemed genuinely touched, and Dorinda was able to pull off the surprise. I have no idea how Ramona didn’t see it coming after her conversation with Carole Radziwill, but Ramona wasn’t paying attention- as per usual- which was actually a good thing this one time.
Pointing out the obvious, Kelly scoffed that Real Housewives Of New York is “not the New York Times” and has no business getting involved politics.
“I don’t know Carole at all,” Kelly added, “but I just think slamming anyone for their political views is tacky.” Instead Kelly suggested that Carole use this as a learning opportunity – not a judging one!
We have a few blasts from the past in today’s reality star sightings photo roundup! First up, we have former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville out for a NYLON magazine party with her longtime boyfriend, DJ Friese. Crazy in love looks good on her. Other former RHOBH stars Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer were also out and about.
Look below for pictures of Kenya Moore showing off her Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion look, Kyle Richards working on her American Girl sitcom, Andy Cohen hugging the breakout star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion, Kail Lowry showing off her baby bump, introvert Erika Girardi posing nude for Instagram, and more.
It’s Go Time! This week’s Real Housewives Of New York picks up right where we left off – in the Hamptons at Ramona Singer’s home, with Dorinda Medley poised to pounce on Sonja Morgan. And pounce, she does. She does NOT make it nice. No, no, no. And Ramona couldn’t be happier (or more Pinot’d up) that she gets to host the party that will launch a thousand storylines this season. Ramona isn’t so happy later on when Carole Radziwill un-invites her to her election party, though. This week also marks the emergence of Tinsley Mortimer out from under Sonja’s tattered wing when she sneaks out for dinner with Luann De Lesseps and Dorinda – but fails to invite her benefactress along! Oh, I could just pinch myself with delight at the Jane Austen-ness of the whole Tinsley/Sonja tableau! It’s just…delicious.
As Sonja and Tinsley stroll into the party, Tinsley is nervous to meet Dorinda. But there’s no need! Because after double kisses with Luann, Dorinda plays nice with Tinsley, trading small talk about how it’s going living at Sonja’s Socialite Rehabilitation Center. But Tinsley goes deep fast, revealing her messy past – then instantly regretting the word vomit. Dorinda’s like, Who cares? I see a limping gazelle strolling through the weeds… She’s got her sights set on Sonja, and only Sonja, tonight.
In her blog, Dorinda also recaps last week’s antics, which included Ramona questioning Bethenny Frankel about a decades-old horror flick in which she appeared nude. Or, as Ramona calls it: soft core porn. But first, Dorinda explains her sleeping arrangements in the Hamptons. “I am being pulled between staying with Luann [De Lesseps]and staying with Ramona, so I decided to split the weekend and stay with both. I was happy to finally see Lu’s newly renovated home, and it is gorgeous. It is exactly what you want a beach house to be—cozy, updated and with a view of the water. What more could a girl ask for?”
This Real Housewives of New York season has been a tough one for me to watch. All of the nastiness between my two favorites Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley made me uncomfortable. These are the two funniest ladies on the show. It has been killing me to see them talking shit about each other and arguing in the previews for upcoming episodes.
Thankfully there is some light at the end of the tunnel: these two are on speaking terms again and are back to getting along well. They actually did a joint interview together. Even if this season continues to be rough between them, I have some hope. Yet, at the same time, I’m hoping that some footage doesn’t air to reignite their feud. Typically, I don’t mind the Real Housewives drama, but these are two people that I want to see getting along. I need them bringing the comic relief and the meme-worthy quotes.
We are kicking off this week’s social media pics roundup with two fan favorites, Jeff Lewis and Dorinda Medley. Dorinda shared the snapshot above on Instagram, adding, “Nothing like catching up with Jeff Lewis over a meal to start off my LA trip on the right foot!”
